Davis Bunn’s novels have sold more than 7 million copies, and won him a four Christy Awards. Now with Miramar Bay, Bunn turns his talents to romantic women’s fiction in the tradition of Nicholas Sparks, Karen Kingsbury and Francine Rivers. An uplifting tour de force, Miramar Bay will capture readers’ hearts everywhere with a compelling story of two strangers finding second chances in a small coastal town.


When Connor Larkin boards a late night bus in downtown L.A., he’s not sure where he’s going or what he’s looking for. He just knows he’s searching for something he can’t define – a part of himself he lost on the road to success – but something worth walking away from his acting career and famous fiancée to find. With the demands of Hollywood at his heels, Connor finds himself stepping into the sleepy seaside town of Miramar Bay—where one remarkable woman inspires him to rethink all of his choices…

Hearing familiar music drifting out of Sylvie’s restaurant, Connor feels as if he’s finally come home. Sylvie isn’t sure what to think when this impossibly handsome stranger applies for a waiter’s job. Yet once he serenades her customers—and slowly works his way into her heart—she realizes there’s more to him than he’s letting on. And Connor realizes he’s found his destiny. But as the outside world encroaches, threatening their fragile bond, Connor will have to risk losing everything to gain the life he longs for, and be the man Sylvie deserves.

Filled with bittersweet longing, Miramar Bay is an unforgettable journey through doubt and desire—to the truth that can be discovered along the road less taken.
